WELCOME, INSTA-FRIENDS!

If you're looking for:

It can so disappointing when you invest so much in having the birth of your dreams, only to find out after having your baby that with the right support things could have been so different.

 

It is unfair when you have to settle for the status-quo antenatal care, and the realization that little to no support is provided after the baby is born.

And then you choose differently the second time around. The truth is, you can do it from the very start. Even before you get pregnant!

You deserve a unique experience that will be an unforgettable and powerful story to tell.

your baby

Baby´s are individuals. Whether they cry inconsolably, can´t tolerate to be put down or only feel calm at the breast, they show who they are and what they need through their behaviour.

Together, we can learn about your baby and understand who they are and why they are showing certain behaviours.

JOURNEY

My Approach

Donald Winnicott, the British psychoanalyst stated

'There is no such thing as a baby...' 

Babies don´t exist without mothers, without someone to keep them alive, to gaze at them, to love them.

When a baby is born, he is thereafter the center of everyone´s attention.

Everyone wants to see the baby.

Everyone asks for the baby. 

But who asks for the mother?

Who wants to see the mother?

Mothers need to be cared for and seen so they can love and nurture their children.
